Why Moms Stay at Home

In the 90s, moms were more on building their careers. They also use their salaries to help augment the family income. When moms earn, the family can usually send the kids to private schools and afford family vacations. They could not afford these luxuries if there was only one source of income.

In a middle income household, the home is then managed on a day to day basis by an overall helper. The kids have their babysitter or two. Sometimes, a driver is hired to bring kids to school and do errands to the supermarket with the helper.

~Working online gives moms flexibility. They can go on a family vacation and still take part in a teleconference.~

Some of the reasons why moms have left the career path because they:

  • are missing their children’s milestones and growing up years
  • miss most of their children’s special school events
  • can better nurture and guide their children
  • can correct wrong behavior and teach them good values
  • are realizing that they can save on expenses if they stay at home and take care of the household
  • can spend more family meal times together before the children become teenagers
  • have the option to supervise their children if they choose homeschooling
  • have husbands are working abroad or somewhere else so they realized that having one parent at home is better
  • are happier and more fulfilled when spending time with the kids
  • can can create happy family traditions that they can cherish years later

Changing Mommy Career Trends

Eventually, the career trend for working moms changed. Mothers may have started realizing some things. They now prefer to stay at home.

They save on expenses for the salaries and consumables of household help and babysitters. And the best part is, they can personally oversee their household and family affairs. They are also present when their husbands come home from work. Some women put a value on this, so to each her own.
